Crown Inn, number 118 Lowtown (Pudsey)
Colour image1981. View of the Crown Inn at number 118 Lowtown. This is a very old building situated near to a historic area of Pudsey known as Crimbles. This area was once occupied by people who worked in the textile industry, cloth manufacturers and hand-loom weavers who worked from home. The original building is thought to date from 1780 but it was rebuilt by Samuel Myers in the early 1830s. The bow windows date from this period. The new building heralded a change of name from The Shoulder of Mutton to The Crown in order to pay homage to the new, young Queen Victoria. The Crown has not altered much externally over the last 175 years or so but has been extensively modernised internally. It is Grade II listed.

Scatcherd Hill, looking towards Morley Bottoms (Morley)
Black & White imageUndated. A view looking down Scatcherd Hill towards Morley Bottoms, showing shops on the right hand side. The coloured postcard was taken before the tramlines were installed in 1911. The shop nearest the right is a confectioners with an advert for Carr's biscuits in the window; beyond this is John Crockatt's dyers and dry cleaners. The occupiers of the next four are not visible, though the last of these with a bow window might still be a house. After this comes the long flight of steps up to Troy Hill and then two houses with gardens that were the last to be converted into shops. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.
